The National Council for Research on Women is a broad network of leaders and experts working for positive change across the economy and society. At its core are 120 research, policy and advocacy member centers, two-thirds based on university campuses across the U.S. with a growing number of international partners. Members meet rigorous standards of scholarship and excellence and have a significant impact on improving the lives of women and girls.
NCRW also has an active Corporate Circle of major companies who are committed to advancing women and under-represented groups in their organizations. Leaders from higher education comprise the NCRW's Presidents Circle. Other forms of membership are open to individuals and organizations as Affiliates.
Volunteer opportunities are also available to scholars, emerging leaders and prospective change agents across disciplines and interests. We believe that together, we can build a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable world.
